Australian Financial Services Licensing (AFSL) Forum


Bill Brown


I’m interested in exploring whether it’s possible to buy an entity to run a funds management business.  My focus has been on trying to ‘get’ a job in funds management, but reading this forum, maybe its better to ‘buy’ a job.

Because I’m not sure what is possible, I’ll say what I can offer and am after, and if someone believes they can help, feel free to make contact.

My skill is in allocating the funds. I believe I can achieve above average results over the long term investing in Australian and international equities.  What I can do and want to do is allocate the funds as funds manager, and beyond that engage the necessary professionals to support the business.  There are no committed clients, however the required capital to set it up and run the business until there are, is available.

If someone believes they may be in position to offer me something, please feel free to make contact at
